That was so good!!!!!
Enjoying this story.
Snape is one of my favourite characters and you do a really good job on him.
Do you think Dumbledore was really uncaring? Perhaps more driven by the need to see the bigger picture but he did admit that he had made mistakes.
Looking forward to the next chapter.
Your fic is comminmg along well! Snape and other characters, and the plot are so far in canon. I was disappointed that DH did not go more into what the people at Hogwarts were doing, and I very much wanted to have more of Snape. That last year at Hogwarts would have been one of unbearable stress and pain. Looking forward to future installments.
I think you're doing a great job with this one. Even after reading your end note, I don't think that Dumbledore was a bastard to Snape in the 7th book. I think that Dumbledore needed to make Severus aware that the choices he made as a Death Eater got his best friend killed and, as retribution for that, Dumbledore is making sure that Snape makes amends for his actions by protecting Harry, even if he doesn't want to. I think Dumbledore knows that Severus would do this for Lily, but he has to be reminded from time to time that Harry is not only James Potter's son. I think it's a bit of tough love, really. As far as being canon compliant, I also think you're doing a great job. The personalities of the characters are spot on, even Snape. (Who I'm having difficulties with in my own fledgling fanfic). Keep up the good work. I am really enjoying seeing what Snape is up to during Deathly Hallows.
The chapters are short, but I like them. You're doing a great job with Snape's personality. Is he going to obliviate Hermione? I don't think he does. I was thinking about when Hermione conjured the beaker for Harry in the Shrieking Shack in DH. I think she knew Severus' intentions all along...I'm enjoying it. Can't wait for an update.
Author's Response: I am sorry for the short chapters - people told me the same in the other HP archive I'd published this before. The problem is that the opening chapters of this fic are to correspond with the canon of DH and I needed to be very careful not to "overstep the boundaries." They will be longer later on, at least some of them. (-: Iva
I love it. This story is getting really interesting. Please update soon!
Author's Response: I am happy you like my idea. The next chapter was just posted, so hopefully it will be validated soon.
This is a great start. I'm really involved in it. I too wanted to see more of what was going on at Hogwarts while the trio were searching for Horcruxes. I am hoping the movie (both parts) doesn't stay too true to the books and gives us some glimpses of Hogwarts during that period of time. I look forward to your update!
Author's Response: Yes, here is one also hoping for different approach of the movies to book 7. I would love especially if they could "change" the ending slightly, so that Snape doesn't have to die that terrible way. (I am still living in denial - no body, no portrait, no funeral - maybe he hasn't die at all? But we shall see if Rowling just oversaw these things or if it was purpose.) Glad here that you like my story and I hope you will continue to enjoy it!
